It's not my fault that you're beautiful.

So beautiful that, when I catch myself looking, I have to tear my gaze away from you no matter how difficult a chore that seems to be.

Someday, I fear, I will delay for too long. And my eyes will become so spoiled by your face that they will from that moment on refuse to see anything else. They will betray me just as my heart once betrayed me. They will go on strike, and they will demand concessions that are not mine to give.

This is why I turn away.

Because I must.

Because, for now anyway, I can.

You spend too much time worrying about things like this. But you already know that, don't you?

Yes dear. Whatever you say dear.

If you haven't left a comment here before, you may need to be approved before your comment will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
